Moxie Fab Tues Trigger- FLower Power & Carol's Ink Spot

Getting in on two challenges with this card! Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger has the color and flower inspiration with this beautiful pillow from Crate & Barrel .

Check it out here and play along:

Carol is having a BIG Ohhhh Birthday and she is sharing fun gift with us! Here are the deets on her giveaway challenge where you can wish her a Happy Birthday:

  1. Make a birthday card
  2. Incorporate a flower or more if you'd like
  3. Happy colors please - just nothing overly dark
  4. Finish the inside too
OK, well this card looked better in my head :(
I Love the colors from MFW's inspriration photo and thought I would incorporate the flowers with mat colors to match....I don't why or how this happens, but anywho, here's my card, the inside is for Carol's challenge!

Papertrey Ink's Button Challenge

I needed a baby congratulations card real quick and there happens to be another challenge over at Papertrey Ink. Nicole Heady has introduced the Button Boutique collection today. There are dies and stamps to make vintage button cards. Such a fun concept. I have to post this and run, but will come back to give the deets :o)

Happy 4th Anniversary Papertrey Ink!

Four FANTASTIC years of creative genius and still growing!

Nichole Heady at Papertrey Ink has assembled the ULTIMATE card kit as a prize she is giving away and there will be one lucky winner!
Check it out:

Here's all you have to do: "Go through YOUR Papertrey projects from the last year and choose your very favorite of the bunch."

I just sent this card to a dear friend who has been an enormous support to me these past two weeks of trial and tribulation and thought, "Well, right now this is my favorite" just because it means so much to me. I also wish I could mail a card to each and every one of you dear friends who have left messages on my Blog and are saying prayers for my husband.
May God Bless you all!

My Card~
The stamp is a sweet little guy you have seen on a few of my cards~he's from Michael's Dollar bin! I stamped it directly onto the card and then again onto "Polka Dot Parade" paper (Papertrey Ink Sneak Peek Pieces) cut out the body and popped it 3-D over the first stamped bird. I added a real feather as his tail. The sentiment is "Signature Greetings" from Papertrey Ink - one of Dawn McVey's fabulous stamp sets. Used my EKSuccess Corner Rounder punch just on the bottom.

Hope you all have a wonderful and snow-free weekend!
